A 2½-day Leadership Masterclass for Managers in Government and Business

The Team Results Masterclass is a 2½-day leadership masterclass aimed at people with management responsibilities in government and business. Most participants are at the mid- to senior management level, but anyone who leads people will benefit. This is not a standard training program, but an intensive masterclass for working leaders, compressed into a single 2½-day program including two overnights. It is run by Team Results USA, the company which trains leadership teams for IBM, Pfizer, Toyota, the State Department, DHS, the FDA and many others. Graduates will emerge with advanced professional development aimed at furthering their careers in the leadership of people and their own membership of senior leadership teams. Programs of this type have been utilized by top-100 companies and peak government organizations for years, always at significant expense. This masterclass makes it possible for smaller organizations and organizations with limited budget to secure the same benefits for selected leaders at minimal cost.

Benefits from the Team Results Masterclass include:

  • Leadership development that is Original, Credible, Results-based and has Measurable outcomes;
  • Insider exposure to advanced leadership strategies used by senior leaders at top-100 companies and government agencies;
  • Your own Personal Strategies Manual produced during the class containing key take-away results;
  • Total 20 hours of credit for CPE or equivalent;
  • Unlimited after-event coaching support;
  • An exclusive networking group of fellow graduates accessible through a moderated private group.

The Team Results Masterclass is based on Simulation, using the same proprietary techniques and systems which Team Results has offered in-house to major clients since 1996. This method of leadership training reinforces real personal leadership strategies that generate success, combines accelerated learning with fun and laughter, and is supported by modern group learning and team neurodynamic research in which Team Results is a leader in partnership with UCLA.

Administrative Detail Supplement for Government

(Click here for printable copy)

The Team Results Masterclass is a 2½-day leadership masterclass aimed at people with management responsibilities in government and business. Most participants are at the mid- to senior management level, but anyone who leads people will benefit. This document is a supplement to the materials for The Team Results Masterclass, aimed at providing the administrative information required by Government employees to enroll for the Team Results Masterclass.

Disclaimer

While every effort has been made to provide up-to-date and accurate information, we are not authorities on Government procurement and your own local rules and requirements may vary. If in doubt, you should always check the proper procedures and requirements with your manager or in-house procurement authority.

Nature and Type of Program

This is a Training Program run at a Training Center, with a total of 20 tuition hours. To see this program and others on our GSA contract click here.

What Is Included

Tuition, measurement of outcomes, all materials, unlimited follow-up, all accommodation, all meals. The fee is all-inclusive and fully-loaded with no extras.

Distances and Justification for Overnights

The training center is in Middleburg VA. As an alternative to the 50-mile rule, you can legitimately state that it would not be reasonable to go back to base each night, since the tuition component of the program ends at 9:30pm each evening and starts at 8:00am each morning and is in a remote rural area. You are justifying two overnights in all.

Per Diem and M&IE

The Team Results Masterclass is compliant with Federal requirements for Per Diem and M&IE (Meals & Incidentals Allowance). The GSA Per Diem rates and M&IE Breakdown (see References) apply. Provided meals are dinner Day 1, all meals day 2, breakfast/lunch Day 3, break snacks and sodas/coffee.

Procurement Vehicles

A Government credit card used online via Eventbrite and an SF-182 (Federal) is probably simplest. A credit card with a $3500 limit can purchase two seats and be well under the limit. If you’re able to use the GSA for purchasing, that link can be found here.

Cost Basis for Government

As a government purchaser you are paying the negotiated GSA Contract rate, which is the lowest rate. You are not paying any taxes you shouldn’t pay.

Pre-obligation

As a general rule you can pre-obligate this class by 30 to 60 days. The GAO Bona-Fide Need Opinion (see References) applies.

Cancellation and Rainchecks

Commercial terms apply except where they contravene government procurement guidelines, in which case government procurement guidelines have precedence.

What to Bring and How to Get There

You will get a joining package, but in summary, all you need is clothes and toiletries and it’s a drive on paved roads to the training center. There’s plenty of parking.
